Probably not the first time. He’s been calling for Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood recognition for years. via Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood party head meets former U.S. president Carter – People’s Daily Online.
CAIRO, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) — Egypt’s Freedom and Justice Party ( FJP) chairman Mohamed Morsi met here Thursday with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter to discuss Egypt’s transition process.
Carter congratulated Morsi on the parliamentary election results achieved by the party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), noting there was international consensus to respect the results which reflect the Egyptian people’s choices, said a statement posted on the MB’s website.
The former U.S. president called on the FJP to accommodate nascent and new parties of youth which have not achieved significant rates of victory in recent elections, it said.
Morsi said a mixed presidential-parliamentary model was optimal for Egypt in the current transitional period. This can be transformed into a full parliamentary system after the completion of democratic process, he added.
The FJP chief also said Egypt is a big country with vital institutions and respects the agreements signed in the past as long as all parties are committed to their terms within the framework of respect for sovereignty and independence.
Carter, who arrived in Egypt Monday, held talks with the chief of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, Hussein Tantawi, and Prime Minister Kamal el-Ganzouri.

Anti-Americanism: The worst president of the 20th century is now fomenting terrorism in the 21st century by helping Egyptian Islamists. For decades, Jimmy Carter has been legitimizing mass-murderers in the name of peace.
The president whose infamous 1979 televised “malaise speech” blamed his own failures on Americans’ “growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives” has spent much of his life aiding some of America’s most murderous enemies.
As president, with his U.N. ambassador, Andrew Young, calling the Ayatollah Khomeini “some kind of saint” and his own State Department suggesting Khomeini’s anti-American writings were forgeries, Carter abandoned our ally the Shah of Iran and let Khomeini conduct an Islamist revolution. For 444 days 52 Americans were held hostage.
If not for Carter’s naive “human rights” foreign policy, an anti-American Islamofascist regime in Tehran wouldn’t be on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons.
Why would a former U.S. president help the organization that established the Hamas terrorist group and whose Egyptian Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) manifesto promises to cut off oil and gas to “the Zionist occupiers of Palestine,” establish Taliban-like Shariah law and devastate the economy by banning the supposedly Zionist practice of consumer lending?
